Loose Teeth in Sugar Hill, GA and the Surrounding Areas
Patients with moderate to severe gum disease are at an increased risk of experiencing loose teeth in Sugar Hill, GA. If you are suffering from any of the following symptoms, you should seek treatment from Dr. Randolph Moore as soon as possible.
Causes of Loose Teeth
Loose teeth can be caused by an injury or accident but are most frequently caused by severe gum disease. This happens when the bacteria in your mouth start to eat away at the supporting bone and tissue structures which hold your teeth in place. Eventually, these structures can become so damaged by gum disease that they are no longer functional. Your teeth may begin to loosen and shift and may even need to be extracted. Luckily, there are plenty of warning signs along the way.
It is important to consult with Dr. Moore about gum disease treatment
as soon as any of these symptoms become apparent. During the early stages of infection, treatment is relatively simple and easy. However, once it reaches the deeper tissue levels, treatment becomes more complicated and invasive.
Treating Loose Teeth
If you are already noticing signs of loose teeth, there are several treatments available. First, Dr. Moore may wish to perform scaling and root planing therapy
and possibly locally administered antibiotics to target the bacteria in your mouth. In some cases, a bone or tissue graft may also be necessary to restore the supporting structures of the tooth. Finally, if the tooth has become damaged beyond repair, it may need to be extracted and replaced with a dental implant
